The Sub-Committee

Consulting on queer culture since 2018
Presented by Kingston Arts

LGBTQI people live everywhere and yet some places are thought of as queer, while some areas are not, like Moorabbin.

Setting up a temporary and very camp office at Kingston Arts Centre during their residency, The Sub-committee, consisting of artists Arie Rain Glorie, Bridget Balodis and Jake Preval, have taken it upon themselves to see if they can unearth the 'gaybourhood' in the local neighbourhood.

During their time in office (14 Jan - 1 Feb), they will map the queer signifiers of the area, examine the queer subtext of the local culture and leave their door open to anyone who might have some vital information about how queerness can be defined, located and referenced.

Bypassing the cliches of pointing out who speaks with a sibilant 's' or who prefers to wear boots instead of high heels, it is the Sub-committee's mission to find a way for people to better understand the complexities of queer visibility.

A live-art public assembly will be held on 2 February at 6pm to share a glorious summation of their research, which will inevitably be followed by wine, finger food and more wine.

An exhibition will be held from 3 - 26 February in celebration of their legacy.
